The Night Heron

Name: Night Heron

Place: Dingle Gardens, Shrewsbury

Date: 1st May 2017

Time: 11.00am

Weather: Cloudy with breaks of sun

The Night Heron is a rare visitor to the UK. We were very excited when we heard that one had been spotted at Venus Pools, a nature reserve in Shrewsbury. This seemed like the perfect habitat for a rare bird, unlike the next spot where it appeared over the May bank holiday weekend. When we first arrived at Dingle gardens we were not completely convinced we were in the right spot. Dingle gardens is quite an ornamental garden. But there, sitting in the middle of the pond, was the very rare night heron. I have to say, one of the easiest ‘twitches’ we have had!
